The Secret Life of a Book Blogger

Huge thank you to Jesse @ Books at Dawn for the nomination! He’s pretty great so if you don’t follow him you’re really missing out!

This is the first time I’ve been tagged for this so I’m really excited:

How long have you been a blogger?

I have been blogging for less than two months and really wish that I had started sooner! It’s been going well so far, better than I would’ve ever expected, so I can’t complain 🙂

At what point do you think you’ll stop blogging?

NEVERRRR! At least not anytime soon. I’ll graduated soon so hopefully I’ll be able to continue after that. I would be really sad if I had to stop. I like to stick to things once I start so I would like to get a few years of experience in.

What’s the best thing about blogging?

Getting to talk to other bookworms! I have very few friends that read often, so it’s nice to talk to other people who are like me.

What’s the worst thing about blogging?

Right now, there isn’t a ‘worst’ thing. I don’t feel pressure to post, I just do it because I can and because I want to. I mean, that’s the point of a hobby right?! You should be able to make up your own rules and it should be fun not stressful.

How long does it take to find/create pictures for your posts?

I recently started ‘creating’ my own pictures (but I don’t always). It doesn’t take that long once you figure out which font and colors you want because you just stick to that. I’m also not super tech savvy or anything so I really only make featured images. I haven’t gotten to the level of putting them in my posts yet.

Who is your book crush?

Peeta Mellark duh!… And maybe Four, I like Four ❤

What author would you like to have on your blog?

Jodi Picoult! I love her work and I have so many questions that I want to ask her. She is my absolute favorite author and I think that I could learn so much from her.

OR Veronica Roth! She’s young and spunky. I follow her on twitter and she’s pretty funny and down to earth…I would also like to ask why she ended Allegiant the way she did…. 😉

What do you wear when you write your blog posts?

Well, you know how some people read the paper while they drink their coffee? Well I check WordPress while I drink mine! So typically pajamas in the morning and before I read at night.

How long does it take you to prepare?

Depends on what I’m posting about. Book reviews probably take longest because I need to get all my thoughts in order. Next would be tags and such because I usually have to find book covers/answer all of the question. So far, This or That doesn’t take too long, maybe 15 minutes max. And during random posts I just blurt out my thoughts which doesn’t take long at all.

How do you feel about the book blogger community?

I think it’s great! I wish that I knew all of you in person. I felt so welcomed and supported when I first started and it was really encouraging. IT made me want to continue and get better.

What should be done to achieve a successful blog?

First and foremost, have fun. Don’ be afraid to put yourself out there and the rest will fall into place.


Now I tag:

  2. I loved reading all your answers. You and I started blogging right around the same time, and I agree that it’s really fun, especially getting to connect with other bibliophiles.
